4. Potted plants
Move over, scented candles. There’s a new kid in the block. Moreover, you don’t need to have a green thumb to benefit from one or two plants in your house or patio.
From improving your mood and reducing stress to improving overall well-being, there are many benefits of having plants around. Additionally, pot plants can give your home or office space a bright and welcoming vibe.
There are plenty of plants to choose from, but if you want something that will give you the most rewards for the minimal amount of effort, you can’t go past succulents.

Let’s face it. Irrespective of your age, you can never have enough stationery. You’ll always need notebooks, paper, sketch pens, pencils, highlighters, personalized memo pads, and markers.
So what better way to prepare for the new year than by stocking up on these essential items and treating yourself at the same time with a lovely stationery set or two? If you don’t end up using everything you bought, remember that stationery sets can double up as excellent gifts for others.
6. Travel backpack
An impromptu road trip with friends, a presentation at the office, a weekend getaway at a resort — it’s not hard to imagine a scenario where a travel backpack can come in handy. A sturdy travel backpack makes a great gift for yourself that you’re sure to get plenty of use out of.
7. Gift coupons
Given the spontaneous nature of everyday living, you never know what you might need later down the line. If you don’t can’t think of anything at the moment, buy yourself some gift coupons that you can redeem later to buy something you really need.
The magic of coupons is that it puts this money away for your future self, so you won’t accidentally spend it on stuff you don’t need!
8. A pair of slippers
Ladies, this one is for you! It’s essential to wear the correct type of footwear, both indoors and outdoors. A good and sturdy pair of slippers can protect your feet while keeping them warm and cozy.
Indoor footwear has been in vogue of late, with fur and sheepskin slippers making quite the splash. This trend is not surprising considering we’re all spending more time at home, and lets you stay comfy and stylish at the same time!
9. Feminine Health Supplements
Self-care is all about prioritizing your health, may it be your mental, emotional or physical health. It is easier said than done, though. For instance, keeping a balanced diet means letting go of certain foods high in fat and sugar. Sometimes, even when you have a good mix of greens and meat in your diet, you’re still not getting the nutrients that you need. Taking health supplements can help you with that. You just have to choose which ones to take since supplements target different nutritional needs.
While books, coffee-makers, comfy slippers, gift coupons, gym membership, potted plants, stationery sets, and backpacks are all excellent ideas – at the end of the day, you know yourself the best.
A present need not be something of material value. Even a promise to yourself counts as a gift. So, stop hesitating, and reward yourself with that present that you have always wanted. After all, you deserve it!
